years, it's time to write about hit in the books of law. the job of the president-- and obama has done this magnificently-- to make america feel its greatness, its ideals to arouse our idealism. it's also the job of a president to write it in the books of law, to get actual legislation passed. that's what a nation is governed by and the second term in my mind is going to hinge on what is written in the books of law. >> rose: two things, one is that there's no question that l.b.j. is the most formidable political human figure i've ever met and if we had only known that person that bob caro knows through his research that i was lucky enough to know when i was 24 years old i think the country would have been felt differently there was one moment that he spoke to a bunch of reporters and he was himself and he never did that again. the teleprompter was a girdle on him. to go back to what bob woodward said, we can't forget that the republicans have attacked the democrats and obama even more fiercely than he's attacked them so it's not like he's out there saying these mean things about them.

, thanks to moore's law, which is the law that drives everything in technology about making every 18 months becomes twice as powerful and half as expensive -- >> rose: the processing in computers and everything else. >> everything becomes cheaper over time. like if you made an automobile it would only cost ten cents today. but the notion is that now we've gone -- we've put the means production in the hands of the consumers and that means that they literally no longer need media companies or big companies. if they have something to say or something they want to create and it basically says people like you who have an audience, who have a brand, no matter how large or small can reach that brand in a way you never could before. you don't need someone else's permission. you don't need to observe the seven words no one can say on television. you can have whatever programming you wish. this is likely, i think, to result in some really important improvements in dail life for all of us. i thk itill be transformational in education because essentially this notion that we're going to dogmatically say

to apple's stunning growth, but perhaps the law of large numbers, i think growth is getting increasingly harder to achieve. i think the easy growth has already happened in the iphone in developed markets like the u.s. the next wave of growth will come from emerging markets, from china and lower-priced phones. so apple may have a harder time getting that sort of growth. >> tom: i think 61% of its business last quarter was done internationally. showing how important the international shares are. what about comply constraints that apple may have experienced. there was lots of talk about that with the apple iphone 5. are those restraints continuing. >> it looks like it weighed on the december quarter, the iphone 4 and there was a lot of demand for the cheaper version. it seemed like on a lot of different levels, iphone wasn't able to execute. and that was surprising, given tim cook's strengths. that is not an area we think is weak. after steven job's paving. >> tom: and is that what we heard, the late forecast, being a little shy of what we expected. >> i think the forecast was weak. especia
